Superb dining, calm intimate restaurant and great wines

We enjoyed the 5 course tasting menu with wine pairings which was really good, and excellent value at around 70 EUR pp. The restaurant is always fully booked so do reserve well in advance. We loved the fact that they hadn't squeezed in lots of tables and kept the place very quiet. The... read more

We enjoyed a lovely evening meal here, having been recommended by our hotel. It is best to book a table as the restaurant is very popular. Husband and wife team, Chef Gino and front of house Erica have been running the bistro for nearly 30 years. The menu changes monthly. The bistro is small with only 8 tables and has... More

Lovely little restaurant with great food. We had 3 courses with a wine, came to 120€. It was like walking into someone's house, a nice setting and a pleasant evening was had.

Lovely little restaurant run by husband and wife team. We really enjoyed everything about this charming restaurant and it was great to chat to the owners afterwards. We had the tasting menu with paired wines which was absolutely delicious. People were being turned away at the door so I think that booking is essential. A very special experience and I... More

Our second visit to this restaurant in the centre of Bruges. The food is really good. Because we knew it was small we booked before we went. I think there are only about 8 tables. On this visit there was a comprehensive fish menu, but we are all meat eaters and I had the duck, my partner had the lamb,... More

We booked this restaurant before travelling to Bruges. Our decision was based on the reviews and we were not disappointed. We all had the set menu which was good value and great quality. Three of us had the matched wines which were good too. The service was excellent and we had memorable evening. The restaurant is small which I think... More

Our B&B recommended this intimate small restaurant and we were not let down. The hostess ( and owner of De Stove ) greeted us at the door and showed us our table by the window. The food ( Foie Gras, Bouillabaisse, Turbot ) were classic dishes and very well prepared. My husband said it was the best Fish soup he... More

This is a deceptively unassuming restaurant which is one of the best in Bruges. The chef cooks the dishes himself and his wife (I believe they own the place) serves them like the lady of the house making you feel very welcome. When they are booked up, they have a sign on the door

We were so happy that we chose De Stove for our anniversary celebration during our trip to Bruges! We chose the fixed menu with the wine pairings and everything was fabulous! Clearly Chef Gino takes great pride in his cuisine. We were lucky to be there during white asparagus season and so we enjoyed his Flemish preparation of it. Delicious!... More

I booked a table at De Stove after reading the excellent reviews on TA. What a good choice, a small place with excellent food. We enjoyed every course, food was prepared with a great deal of attention to detail. My husband & I both had lamb for mains, melt in the mouth fillet of lamb with dauphinoise potatoes...scrumptious. Definitely worth... More
